Excerpt: "</font></font>Center David Baas said the “migraine-type” headaches he’s been suffering for
the last few days stem from a neck injury he’s been dealing with all season. And
he made it sound like there’s at least a possibility his condition could land
him on injured reserve.
<p class="rtecenter">“I really want to play football, but my health
is very important to me,” Baas said in brief remarks to the media in the locker
room on Wednesday afternoon. “They’re going to make the best
decision.”

Baas was vague about his condition and said that doctors are
still testing him and evaluating the results. He’s been suffering headaches
since Sunday, when he was a late scratch a few hours before the Giants’ 38-35
loss to the Packers. Concern about his situation was ratcheted up earlier
Wednesday when Tom Coughlin said it was “<a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/giants/2011/12/baas-ailment-more-serious-than-a-headache">much
more serious than a headache, obviously</a>.”

“I’m doing pretty good,”
Baas said. “All I really have to say is I’ve had neck issues. I’ve been dealing
with it pretty much all season. These issues have stemmed into migraine
symptoms. Now we’re getting a lot of tests done and evaluations. I’m going to
let the medical staff handle all that and make the right decision.


“The neck issue definitely has been new. I’ve been pushing
through it all season and trying to deal with it. We’ve been doing certain
things to deal with it. The migraine-type headaches are new. It’s just something
that’s kind of unexpected. I’ve just go to deal with it and we have to do what’s
right for this team. The medical staff will make that decision.”

Asked
if there was a chance his season could be over, Baas said “I ‘m not thinking
about that at all. All I’m thinking about is this week and I’m going to do
whatever they want me to do in terms of getting stuff tested out and looked at
and be here for meetings and do whatever I can for getting treatment and go from
there.”
